Surly Big Easy
Surly Big Easy
Surly finally goes electric with the Big Easy - an electrified version of their beloved Big Dummy.
With a Bosch CX motor and option for dual batteries you can go wherever you want to with passengers in tow. Featureing 26” wheels, three sizes, great components and notably, Surly-specific kid-carrying accessories.

The Big Easy represents a big step for Surly - their first electric bike based on the first major production longtail, the Big Dummy. It’s no surprise they chose the Big Dummy as the bike to adapt to electric - the Big Dummy after all is a terrific vehicle for carrying stuff, kids and more anywhere you want to go. With electric, there are literally no excuses left not to take the bike on your next journey.
Another big improvement that comes along with the unveiling of the Big Easy is the advent of Surly-specific kid carrying accessories. Previously, a Surly customer relied on other manufacturer’s accessories to adapt the Big Dummy to carry kids. Now, you can trust that all the parts are designed by the same manufacturer for perfect compatibility and reliable safety.
Also, worth noting is the new Big Easy fork that comes stock with the Big Easy complete bike. The Big Easy fork is designed around the 26” wheel size with tire clearance up to 3.0", but is also capable of running 27” wheel setups with max tire clearance of 2.8” or 700c wheel setups with a max tire clearance of 47c. Sometimes larger tires on a cargo bike is just the thing if you want to increase the positive feel of your loaded bike on the roadway, or if you’re wanting to venture off the beaten path.
Introducing, the Big Easy. An electrified version of the very popular Surly Big Dummy longtail bike.
Featuring a Bosch CX motor. Add to this high-torque motor the option for dual batteries you and get ready to go wherever you want to with passengers in tow.
Classic Surly Touches. This bike features 26” wheels, three sizes, trusted component choices and, for the first time, Surly specific kid-carrying accessories like the new Surly Kid Corral.
26" wheels front and rear. It's funny to even have to state this fact, but cargo and family bike wheel sizes are all over the place these days. Surly's Big Dummy is built around the classic 26" wheel size, with room for wider tires (up to 2.5" with fenders).
Steel is real. Surly prides themselves on shying away from aluminum. There are plenty of great aluminum family and cargo bikes, but the Big Dummy presents a comfortable, trusted ride.
Compatible with some third party accessories...Just call us. Some Xtracycle stuff may work with this bike. Definitely consider a Rolling Jackass, maybe some Carsick bags. If you have questions about the current compatibility state of affairs, just give us a ring. 206-363-4663
Kid seat compatible! There was a time there where it wasn't quite clear if Surly was on board with kids on their bikes. Surly has now bestowed their blessing upon the Yepp Maxi for carrying smaller kids. No other seat options are sanctioned and will void your warranty.
One pleasant color option. Surly calls this color “Tan Cargo Shorts” and like a great pair of cargo shorts, we predict this bike will be lovingly used for many years by people who appreciate useful innovations.
